This article and associated video explore the progress principle: Of all the things that can boost emotions, motivation, and perceptions during a workday, the single most important in making progress is meaningful work. And the more frequently people experience that sense of progress, the more likely they are to be creatively productive in the long run. Whether they are trying to solve a major scientific mystery or produce a high-quality product or service, everyday progress—even a small win—can make all the difference in how they feel and perform. At P&C, we both practice and preach this philosophy. Taking on the massive, transformative work that we deliver for our clients—often with very compressed timelines—would not be possible without our thoughtful and intentional focus on nurturing project teams, designing for small wins, and ensuring all involved track the wins and incorporate the lessons from any setbacks encountered along the way. Please reach out to me to learn how we incorporate the progress principal within our firm and our client engagements.
